This shade was definitely a cool tone.. It's not very flattering on me but then again it's not the right color so I couldn't have expected much more than what I got. I do like that it spreads and doesn't settle into pores or fine lines, but the color was a total miss for me. It's the closest to my skin tone before their darkest shade, cocoa:
Well this one has a bit of a perfume smell to it. like a synthetic, linen-y smell. I don't like to use anything on my skin that has too much fragrance to it but, this is not that bad.
I may not like this foundation but it HAS staying power. When I used to frequently wear this foundation I wasn't using primers or bases yet, and I had a ten-hour day five out of seven days a week. I didn't really do touch ups and from what pictures tell me, I didn't need to. Five stars for durability.
Mine was a gift.. but it retails for 8.99USD. Had I bought this myself, I'd have been very disappointed, but since it was a gift I'm greatful (for the opportunity to review it exclusively).
Don't use your fingers at all. This makeup is thick and will stain your skin. If you use a brush wash it before using it again and wet your sponge before use with this foundation. Don't get in your water line!

Packaging.I was always very nervous that it'd break when I first got it; It's solid for a vial made of glass. I dropped it once; it didn't shatter but I'm not condoning in your trying this at home! It stains, like I've stated before so, keep the pump clean and don't forget to seal this stuff down with a setting spray that is very strong.
I'm not as impressed as I ought to be. I like that it's actually very thick and has excellent coverage, but the colors offered leave a lot to be desired. I'm slapping this product with 2/5 stars. For those of you who love it or have cool tone skin this foundation may be a Godsend. For the rest of us, we may want to look elsewhere.
|It didn't blend very well because it's too light for me. Oh well~|
|See the demarcation line between my scalp and face? That's not my tan line this time! this foundation no longer works for me so I'm afraid I'll be tossing it.|
